THE FN FAL BATTLE RIFLE. Bob Cashner.

THE FN FAL BATTLE RIFLE.

England: Osprey Publishing, 2013. Paperback. 7 x 10, 80 pgs, index, b&w and color photos. Of all the infantry small arms developed during World War II, one that generated the most interest was the German `assault rifle , the StG 44 Sturmgewehr. This innovative weapon inspired the Soviet AK-47 in 7.62x39mm calibre. In the West, the NATO countries looked hard at new weapons to upgrade their own infantry arsenals and counter the AK-47, resulting in the design of the Fusil Automatique Leger or FAL. It proved to be a successful battle rifle and was soon adopted by the military and police forces of no fewer than 93 nations. The FAL dominated the militaries of the West to such a degree that its nickname became the Right Arm of the Free World. The FAL fulfilled every role it was asked to perform and remains a viable and well-respected weapon to this day. Very Good+. Item #30020
